The beach has fine sand that is also whiter compared to Goa beaches popular in the north. This beach gets a lot of Goa tourists during the season. And is a hub for various water sports like water scooters, boat rides, and paragliding. Usual amenities like eateries, safety, and accommodations including luxury Hotels and Portuguese era Goa homestays are all along the stretch of beach within walkable distance and or at short distances away.

South Goa Beaches

Colva beach is part of a long stretch of south Goa beaches extending from Cansaulim to Betul about 20 km’s in a straight line. For beach walking, this is a big attraction. As it offers a unique ‘just can’t get lost’ opportunity to them. You can walk on quiet and empty stretches that are punctuated with beaches like this one filled with people. While on Goa Holidays if you like the quieter Goa beaches, we recommend a rather less crowded beach nearby – Utorda beach.

Viewing Sunset sitting while enjoying local food in the shacks, after all, the exhausting activities are what the Goa memories are made of. Especially for those who do not live on a sea-shore.

We recommend a visit beach to Colva beach when you are on Goa Holidays. To soak in the Sun, Sand, and the sea. The memorable experience they create together as the sun bids goodbye for the day.
